We Know Where Dapchi Girls Are – Rep

The member of the House of Representatives representing Bursari/Yunusari/Gaidam Federal Constituency, Hon. Goni Bukar, has said that the military now have an idea where the missing 110 Dapchi girls are.

The girls are believed to have been abducted after Boko Haram insurgents stormed their school, Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Bursari LGA, Yobe State, last week Monday.

According to The Nation, Bukar said that the girls were being kept by the insurgents in Bulabulin, which is located in Yunusari LGA.

Speaking in Damaturu, the state capital, the lawmaker said, “The girls are within Yobe. We have an idea that they are in Bulabulin, Yunusari Local Government. The military is aware that Boko Haram has been in that place for over four years. They live in that place like their own city.”

Bukar also refused to blame the military for the abduction of the girls like the state governor, Ibrahim Geidam.

He said, “I cannot blame the military because I am speaking with those that are carrying out the operation. We have been speaking and they are telling me everything that they are doing; so, I cannot say I will blame anybody in the military. They are doing everything but I think they need to improve in their search so as to rescue those girls.

“This issue is beyond the military that we have in Yobe … It is not the issue of sending 10 policemen or 20 soldiers. It is a matter of commitment. That is what we need. If they like, let them give me the uniform and I will wear it and go and show them the place. Even the day of the incident, the chairman, member, House of Assembly and I went to Gumsa because we had information that three of the girls died along the way and they were thrown away but it was wrong information.”
